Breaking News: MTN Closes Service Centres, Orders Workers To Stay Home
According to The Nation, telecoms giant, MTN Nigeria, said it has confirmed attacks on its facilities in three major cities of Lagos, Ibadan and Uyo in Lagos, Oyo and Akwa Ibom states respectively, ostensibly in retaliation for ongoing xenophobic attacks against Nigerians in South Africa.
Its Company Secretary, Uto Ukpanah, in a statement, explained that sequel to the attacks and the premium the firm has placed on its human capital and other stakeholders, all service centres and offices will remain shut.
Ukpanah said: “MTN Nigeria Communications Plc confirms that over the last day, our facilities, customers and some of our stakeholders have been the subject of attacks in retaliation for the ongoing xenophobia situation in South Africa.
“We have confirmed reports of attacks in Lagos, Ibadan and Uyo.
“While we remain committed to providing uninterrupted services, the safety and security of our customers, staff and partners is our primary concern.
